...tuesday treasures...

After creating this list, I noticed how all of the items I’ve picked for this week’s list have to do with stitching—knitting, crochet and embroidery! I think it might be the colder weather... I’d sure like to have a nice cup of cocoa, a half finished doll on my needles, and a nice pair of those crochet slippers!

Stylishly slouchy:
I love hats like these; too bad that me and wool don’t get along. I need to learn to make one in acrylic. I also need to grow some hair so it doesn’t look ridiculous.

Big bow:
If I could learn to knit on the diagonal (I am self taught, so I have ridiculous holes in my learning) I would totally make this. It would be so snug and cute for the dreariness of winter.

Striking stitches:
I love red and white together. It’s probably my favourite colour combination. It looks so clean and fresh. This is such a cool way to incorporate embroidery in jewellery making.

Warm feets:
I tried to knit mary jane slippers once when I was learning. They never looked as cute as this!
